Establishing a Framework for Evaluation and Teacher Incentives: Considerations for Mexico

In this era of knowledge-based economies and changing demographics, all educational systems must improve their learning outcomes and often also deliver more with less.

 

In order to assist Mexico and other countries in addressing this challenge, this report provides advice for designing, planning, implementing and evaluating policies and practices on educational assessment, standards and evaluation, drawing on the world’s best available expertise. Considering that the quality of educational outcomes cannot exceed the quality of its teachers, the report puts particular emphasis on evaluating and recognising teachers.

 

Effective implementation of educational reforms can, however, prove challenging. Merely knowing what policy levers to apply is not enough. Governments also need to determine the “how” of effective policy design and implementation. The report therefore also provides advice for policy makers to analyse and adapt best practices to make them appropriate in local contexts.

 

This summary report presents the main findings and policy recommendations developed by the OECD Steering Group on Evaluation and Teacher Incentive Policies, consisting of international experts.


Executive summary

Mexico, as the world’s 14th largest economy (2009), faces important challenges in education. Despite the significant progress of the past decades in terms of access to education, improvements in completion rates for lower education levels and development of learning assessments, considerable improvement is still needed. Mexico already invests a high percentage of the public budget in education (at nearly 22%, it is the highest among OECD countries). Results from the 2009 round of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) have shown that although improvement is possible in a relatively short period of time, important challenges remain. In addition to improving the quality of educational services, increasing attainment levels and reducing drop-out rates are also priorities. It is equally important, however, for Mexico to ensure that all students, including those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds and indigenous families, have equal educational opportunities.
